i am trying to set a server texture so people can use it when they join my server,, i copy the download link and paste it into the new (texture pack=) option in the server properties and when i join my server a message appears saying downloading texture and some numbers then the screen freezes for a second and nothing happens.. so i backed out and rejoined then a box popped up saying "this server uses a custom texture would you like to download and install automatically" i select YES and then the screen freezes for a sec and again nothing changes... Is there something i'm missing or doing wrong? can anyone help?
Hi, its not a player texture i'm trying to use, its a server texture that everyone who joins my server has the option to use.. its different from dragging the .zip into the texture pack folder in %appdata% > roaming > .minecraft it say's on a youtube video all you have to do is copy the download link for the texture pack and paste it into the section that says (texturepack=) in the server.properties.yml but i tried and can't seem to get it working..
I found the solution! First, make sure there is nothing in your texturepacks-mp-cache folder in your .minecraft folder. Then, when you copy the link from Dropbox, instead of copying the www.dropbox.com address, right click the download button at the upper right corner of the screen and click Copy Link Location. Put that address into your server.properties. It should start with dl.dropbox.com. Worked like a champ for me!
Another thing that I should mention, is that the pack apparently cannot be more than 10 Megabytes, or the client will think it's too big (not sure why, the errors returned aren't really informative why it thinks 3.0 is bigger than 10000000). So HD texturepacks are pretty much out of the question, especially if it's animated .
Hi, I'm having a simular problem. I am running 1.5.2 bukkit. It was asking if I want to use the texturepack and would say downloading but nothing changed. Today I was trying different links and the pop up disappeared and it keeps changing my link to https\:// instead of https://. I heard MC doesn't like httpS links, but it was working a couple days ago with the same https. I am using dropbox. There is no download button in the corner, but if I change www to dl then that works and should work with the www anyway. My file in under 4MB. Here is the link I am using https://dl.dropbox.c...kd5wvz/BD16.zip Which by everything I have read should work. And yes I have 'use server textures' on.
